About the Rockingham Arts Centre

The Rockingham Arts Centre (RAC) is currently closed for refurbishments. The refurbishments will upgrade the interior of the RAC to strengthen the flexibility and function of the facility for users, lift the quality of art exhibitions, and improve wayfinding between the RAC and the nearby Gary Holland Community Centre.  

Key improvements to the facility will include new swinging walls, hanging rail, ceiling mounts, lighting in the gallery, dedicated storage spaces throughout, a wash-out sink suitable for a variety of art mediums, and refurbished and repainted internal walls without visual distractions. 

A shade sail will be installed in the courtyard, and signs added to help direct visitors between the RAC, car park, and nearby Gary Holland Community Centre. 

The Rockingham Arts Centre will reopen mid-2022. You can follow the refurbishment project here.
